Ron DeSantis racked up several victories against the radical Left during his first term in office.
But the war is far from over for the Florida Governor.
And Ron DeSantis ended his State of the State Address with the last five words Democrats ever wanted to hear.
On Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered the annual State of the State Address to members of the State Legislature.
DeSantis kicked off his speech by touting some of Florida’s accomplishments and highlights over the past year.
“It is my duty under the Constitution to inform the Legislature concerning the condition of the state and to recommend measures in the public interest,” DeSantis began. “Well, as we used to do in the military, here’s the BLUF [Bottom Line Up Front],” he continued, before adding that “Florida is number one and working together we will ensure that Florida remains the number one state in these United States.”
DeSantis then listed off a number of areas where Florida tops every other state in the nation.
He noted that Florida is the fastest growing state in the country, is rated number-one in economic growth among large states, and ranks first for net in-migration and new business formations.
“We rank number one in the nation in tourism, we are number one in law enforcement recruitment and support, we rank number one in the nation for education freedom, we rank number one in the nation for parental involvement in education, we rank number one in fourth grade reading and math amongst all large states, we have the number one public higher education system in the country, and we are number one among large states for the quality of our roads,” DeSantis continued listing categories where Florida dominates the country.
But DeSantis said Florida is most famous for being the top state in the country to protect “our citizens against the biomedical security state.”
In just four years, Ron DeSantis has led Florida to the top of the charts in some of the most important economic and social indicators.
DeSantis’ success in Florida has turned him into a rock star in the Republican Party and made him a top contender for the GOP nomination, as many believe he is the only candidate who could take the nod away from Trump.
But DeSantis is just entering his second term after Florida voters handed him a 19-point landslide re-election victory in November.
And the Florida Governor is just getting started taking the fight to the radical Left.
“So we find ourselves in Florida on the front lines in the battle for freedom,” DeSantis said. “But now’s not the time to rest on our laurels,” he continued, adding that “we have the opportunity and indeed the responsibility to swing for the fences so that we can ensure Florida remains number one.”
DeSantis wrapped up his State of the State Address with one promise that has Democrats on edge.
“We will stand strong, we will hold the line, we won’t back down,” DeSantis declared.
“And I can promise you this, you ain’t seen nothing yet,” he concluded.
